La Donna Taylor Cathedral City - La Donna Jean Taylor, age 78, passed away on January 5, 2020 at Golden Heart Home Care in Cathedral City, CA. She was born in Los Angeles on October 23, 1941. She graduated from Eagle Rock High School in 1959, received a Bachelor's Degree in Spanish from Pasadena College in 1972, and a Degree in Education at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo in 1975. Much of her adult life was spent living in Palm Desert. La Donna took delight in helping others, and that was reflected in her choice of career. She taught at several elementary schools in the Desert Sands Unified School District for a total of nearly 30 years, retiring in 2007. In 1990 she was named Teacher of the Year at Abraham Lincoln Elementary School in Palm Desert. She enjoyed reading (especially her Billy Graham daily devotional), listening to and singing music, writing letters, and researching ancestry. La Donna lovingly cared for her parents in their failing health, and remained steadfast in her Christian faith despite her own health issues. She stated: "Our lives are in His will, and we will only be happy if we acknowledge that." La Donna is survived by her brother, Jay Taylor of Quebec, Canada; nephew, Dan (Jenn) Taylor of Zeeland, MI; niece, Melissa Taylor of Holland, MI; and brother-in-law, Bob Kellogg of Greeneville, TN. Preceded in death were her parents, Jolly and Inez Loraine Taylor; sisters, Beverly Taylor and Barbara Kellogg; and brother, Stephen Taylor. There will be a small private memorial service for family.
